To celebrate, the Legislature is throwing a Party Under the Dome this Sunday, September 2. There will be a family fair and family-friendly activities, a great concert in the evening featuring some big names, and the entire night will be wrapped up with a fireworks display. This event is completely free to attend, and it should be a great day to get out and celebrate our fantastic Province.
There’s a ton of great history about our Provincial capital building available at the Assembly website, including some great historic photos of the construction.
Did You Know? Construction of the Legislature building continued year-round, making it necessary to heat the materials. A heating house with steam pipes covering the entire floor was constructed to hold the yards of stone and sand used in the building’s construction!
